Absolutely loved this book. Stone weaves a wonderful story, effectively combining history, biography and fiction. Although I had read the book many, many years ago, listening made me appreciate Michelangelo's work (and that of his contemporaries) even more. Narration was excellent. Overall a must listen for anyone who loves art or wants to learn more about it.
Fascinating story, brilliantly written with wonderful narration. One of the best books I have listened to or read. No wonder it won a Pulitzer.
Throughout the book Johnson captures the power of propaganda and its complete enslavement of people - whether it be used by governments, institutions, corporations or religions.
Had previously read Conroy's "The Lords of Discipline" and really enjoyed it. "The Great Santini" was even better. Dick Hill's narration is top notch and really brings the story to life. Highly recommend the book.
